Identity Crisis

I’ve been having a serious identity crisis lately. I started blogging as a parent of a child with Sensory Processing Disorder, and  I thought I needed to keep that part of my life separate for some reason. So I created Muddy Monkeys (

But as I’ve been writing more and more, I’ve found myself feeling schizophrenic. The simple fact is that family life is family life, even mixed in with additional challenges. And so, after some soul searching, I’ve decided to integrate my life so that my experience is as authentic as possible. There’s no reason to compartmentalize who I am or who my family is. We just are.

So I will no longer write under Muddy Monkeys but follow my original path — Mommy Evolution ( because we never stop evolving as parents or as people.


  1. Good for you! I started my blog mostly as a diary of life raising a child with SPD. But as I evolved (and had a spiritual awakening) the blog has evolved. And as we have more diagnoses and pieces of the puzzle that is my son, even writing about him as evolved. I love your keeping it all in one place. Looking forward to more!

    1. Thanks! I think SPD ran so much of our lives I initially wanted a separate space to just be a regular mom. But I’m ready to intersect the two ideas and recognize all of this makes me who I am, as a loving mother with an irreverent sense if humor 🙂
